Three feet above the North Sea

Germany-Travelogue  |  Travel time: June 2007  |  by Jörg Knorr

The Nordfriesische Inseln

In the harbour of Borkum the mechanical engineer ended his trip. After exactly 444 kilometers. While the wind blew strong from south east Knorr took the ferry to Emden, where his son picked him up.
Many intense impressions made the journey exciting and interesting. Well equipped the 45-year old mastered fog and the river mouthes and enjoyed it. "Experiencing the landscape from this perspective is something special. You get out of your every day life from day one", says Knorr.
Spiekeroog was a high-light. You could think you are in a different world. No cars, no hotels, no construction sites. This island has a phantastic charisma. Calmness, nature, and a great campsite right at the North Sea. It is so amazing that Knorr stays here for two nights. Switching back to every day life will not be easy. But every time Knorr shows his slideshow he mentally goes paddling again. You can feel the passion when he shows his pictures and comments them live.
